CLEVELAND-- Cleveland rocks.. especially in the summer!
Rock Hall Live! is taking center stage Memorial Day to Labor Day and the Roll and Roll Hall of Fame says the lineup includes more live concerts, festivals and events.
Highlights of the summer lineup are performances from 2009 Inductee Wanda Jackson (with Nashville all-female trio Bang!Bang!), 2015 Inductee Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts), and 2014 Inductee John Oates (Hall & Oates), as well as country rocker Jesse Dayton, and Sum 41 drummer Frank Zummo.
The Rock Hall says this year's lineup kicks off with Catch Meaning Festival on May 27, featuring electronic funk and R&B bands.
